The Black Scholar
contact email: 

The editors of The Black Scholar welcome essays for a special issue examining the complexity of black cultural politics and identity in the Dominican Republic. This special issue seeks to analyze Dominican racial relations against the grain of the cross-disciplinary consensus, primarily U.S.-based, that focuses on Dominicans' "negrophobia," "anti-Haitianism," and "self-hatred." In this way, the issue inserts itself into a globally comparative Black Studies, including the articulations and disarticulations between blackness in the US, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti.

2nd Global Conference: Fan Communities and Fandom

Friday 7th November – Sunday 10th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:
The words 'fan' and 'fandom' often conjure up images of screaming groupies, sports supporters adorned in the colours of 'their' team, die-hard messageboard participants and even stalkers who perpetrate actual violence against the object of their fannish desires. Whether viewed as a positive or negative cultural force, fandoms represent participatory communities that are so thoroughly inscribed within our social fabric, and integral to the way many individuals understand their identity, that it warrants holistic study in an interdisciplinary context.
